What's it all about?

EDF Energy is a Mandatory SEG Licensee 

The Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) is a requirement on Licensees to offer an export tariff to eligible generators. It supports customers who are thinking of installing one of the following technology with a capacity up to 5MW, or up to 50kW for Micro-CHP:

  • Solar photovoltaic (solar PV)
  • Wind
  • Micro combined heat and power (CHP)
  • Hydro
  • Anaerobic digestion (AD)


Customers also need a smart or half-hourly electricity meter.

We’ve created the Export+Earn plan to pay eligible customers for the energy they export.  We will pay you a set rate of 3.5p (excl VAT) for each unit (or kWh) of electricity you export to the grid.

Our Export+Earn Plan

Signing up to this plan means you confirm you have:

  • Installed generation capacity which consists of Anaerobic Digestion, PV, onshore wind and/or Hydro generation only and will only use these installations to export electricity as part of this agreement.
  • An Export meter installed which is capable of recording readings at half-hourly intervals. If the meter is not capable of sending EDF Energy half-hourly readings automatically, you will provide actual readings from the export meter every quarter.
  • Export meter readings and overall generation payment limits TIC of less than 5MW and a total heat and power (micro CHP) up to 50kw.
